3i has an anti‑bribery policy, which applies to all those who work for, act on behalf of or represent 3i. 3i’s anti‑bribery policy requires high standards of ethical behaviour in all our business interactions. Accordingly, we will not offer, pay or accept bribes. In addition to detailed provisions, the policy also requires the exercise of good judgment and common sense.
3i is also committed to working only with third parties whose standards are substantively consistent with our own. This includes our intermediaries and advisers.
As part of our approach to responsible investment, we expect businesses in which we invest to operate in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations and, where appropriate, work towards meeting relevant international standards where these are more stringent. This includes, in particular, upholding high standards of business integrity, avoiding bribery and corruption in all forms and complying with applicable anti‑bribery, anti‑fraud and anti‑money laundering laws and regulations.
